Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Smallest venue where you saw them?

Fiesta Hall at the San Mateo fairgrounds, Dance for Disarmament with Joan Baez in '81, 1000 folks maybe.

Hult Center in Eugene seemed quite tiny, 2-3000.

In Boise they had the basketball floor cut in half with a divider and even then only half full.

Warfield was pretty small.

On the east coast the Lake Placid Olympic Arena was pretty small by MSG/Spectrum/SPAC standards.

Jerry Band: the Keystone Berkeley was about the size of my livingroom. The stage was a foot tall at most and I was standing eye to eye with Jerry in the front row...The Agora(sp) Ballroom in Hartford was dinky.
